George Soros-Financed Groups Scheme to Stop Trump’s Temporary Refugee Halt Order

George Soros-Financed Groups Scheme to Stop Trump’s Temporary Refugee Halt Order, by Aaron Klein.

Immigration lawyers from groups financed by billionaire George Soros, a champion of open border policies, were signatories to a lawsuit filed Saturday to block President Donald Trump’s executive order halting visas for 90 days for “immigrants and non-immigrants” from Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Iran, and Iraq.

The ACLU is massively funded by Soros’s Open Society Foundations, including with a $50 million grant in 2014.

The National Immigration Law Center has received numerous Open Society grants earmarked for general support. The Urban Justice Center is also the recipient of an Open Society grant.

Taryn Higashi, executive director of the Center’s International Refugee Assistance Project, which is listed on the Trump lawsuit, currently serves on the Advisory Board of the International Migration Initiative of Soros’s Open Society Foundations.

Over the last decade, Soros has reportedly provided some $76 million for immigrant issues.

That sort of money would go a long way around here in the climate fight. The warmists have the backing of every government body (local, state, federal, and international) and NGO under the Sun and spend money in nearly every conceivable way — ever noticed how well resourced all their publications, websites, conferences, press releases, and so on are? And that’s just what we see — how much lobbying goes on out of public view? Despite their conspiracy theory that we are funded by big oil or big coal or whatever, speaking from personal knowledge skeptics get no money except for donations from individuals. Amounts of money big enough to pay for full time activists makes a big difference in a public battle.

So translating that to the open borders debate, I cannot see how Soros’ money, tens or hundreds of millions per year, is not having a massive effect on public perceptions.
